Only because Activision's ickiness is out in full display. Both Sony and Microsoft condemning it doesn't change the high likelihood that similar shit is happening at their own companies.
It's a pre-emptive "We care" so they presumably look better(they don't) when their own devs/workers come out and talk about shit going down in house at MS/Sony/Nintendo.

Anyone remember battlefield friends from 2010s?

After the fall of Machinima, the creators withdrew most of their episodes from youtube. They have been steadily re-releasing the episodes on their channel.

This particular episode is not only funny, but seriously appropriate to the current state of BF2042

I never knew it about it, but I can see the appeal. The only thing I cared about Machinma wise was Two Best Friends, who broke off early before the fallout, and sometimes Achievement Hunters.

Okay, this is just impressive. The last time I was this impressed was when someone beat dark souls with a guitar hero controller.

Way to spread awareness while doing something so challenging!

Hey you guys remember that MMO from Amazon? Apperently there is a deflation of the in-game economy happening. I find it rather fascinating, as typical MMO has inflation.
Amazon Games developers promised to solve the problem with deflation, although, of course, such bugs are unacceptable on the launch start of the game

The Metro has always had bad takes in the political sphere, but this takes the absolute butteriest biscuit.🧐

(They're not getting my rage clicks, screenshots all the way for these fools!😉) Also had no idea it won any game awards, as have not followed that glorified advertisement festival, but I suppose ppl still care about those meaningless back-pats enough to write these such articles.

The Game Awards are next week, so REVIII hasn't won anything, tho it is on the shortlist for GOTY. Also, not really Metro's take, but a reader's. So it's really more one bloke bitching his fave game didn't get nominated, if you ask me. That said, I sort of agree. Not that REVIII is bad, it's not, but it is imo only just fine, and it feels like it only made the cut because it's been a pretty disappointing year overall in the AAA space.

I rarely ever read anything from these fools, but why the hate for RE8? I don't like nor care much of the game either, but it's definitely not a bad game, nor would I put it on the worst year list.

Eh I thought the game was alright but I wouldn’t put it as goty material. It’s RE4 in first person mode honestly.

It did win goty from golden joystick awards.

They're why I even got into Battlefield (seriously at least) in the first place. Always thought they were excellent voice actors and writers, but the animation never got past the jank.

I always get these shitty articles popping up in my feed. It's just kinda sad at this point. Imagine growing up to be a games/comics/movie journalist only to shovel out clickbait for the rest of your life.

Ahh, thanks for looking: such info of which clicking on it would've been provided had I done so. But I refuse to feed this algorithm! It still thinks I need to see Jordan Peterson and Russel Brand... I do not! Your noble sacrificial plunge will not be forgotten. 🙏
Yeah, most games in the awards seem to hover around just above average. The only other game I know about winning so far, or probably nominated actually, is Deathloop only cause of the massive fuss cloud it appears to have kicked up. Luckily this isn't a Red Dead/TLou2 type problem this time I guess? Still, am hoping to try that game when finances are better some time.

Better than to be a nobody who can't even feed the staff with the earnings they make for their site or end up being deplattformed because of their slipping sanity caused them to issue a call to violence
